Well Done Victor Cruz, Well Done Indeed
It's not often, being a devout New England Patriots Fan, that you'll hear me utter a kind word about the New York Giants, but when an athlete such as Victor Cruz shows the kind of humanity he did this week in the wake of the Sandy Hook Shootings, I have just one thing to say to Mr. Cruz...God Bless You, you truly understand what it means to be a role model.
New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz has visited the home of the 6-year-old Connecticut school victim who was buried in a replica Cruz jersey. Jack Pinto was among 20 children who lost their lives Friday in Newtown. Several elementary school-age children played touch football in the front yard of his family's home on Tuesday. Many wore Giants jerseys or Newtown football or wrestling shirts as they laughed, smiled and hugged. The children and their families left after several hours. Kids carried autographed Giants footballs and jerseys. About 45 minutes later, Cruz left the home in an SUV and an escort of five police cruisers, sirens blaring. He later tweeted that he has "much love to the entire Pinto family. Great people with huge hearts."
